I'm going shopping tomorrow, dad's gonna send some money so I don't starve. He's good to me.

Passengers, watched 40 mins of it so far, I'm liking it.

Sketchy 19-02-2017 08:17 PM

Evening all.

chinahorse 19-02-2017 08:38 PM

Ooo is that the new one Mary? Yay for food money and your dad being nice.

Evening lorraine :)

Sketchy 19-02-2017 08:40 PM

Hi Lillie. What you up to?

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 08:40 PM

Hey everyone! :)

Sketchy 19-02-2017 08:42 PM

Hi Beckie. How are you?

chinahorse 19-02-2017 08:44 PM

Hey beckie.


I've just finished dinner and am back to my tele watching

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 08:44 PM

I'm good thanks. Quite tired! Home and showered and in PJs now :)

How are you?

Hey Lillie, ninja post! Did you enjoy dinner?

Sketchy 19-02-2017 08:46 PM

Did you have a nice dinner Lillie? I hope there is something good on.

I'm tired too. Having a hideaway day today. I'll try get out tomorrow.

chinahorse 19-02-2017 08:49 PM

Did you enjoy your day out beckie? What did you get up to?

Hideaway days are good sometimes though lorraine. They are needed.

I had chips and curry sauce.

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 08:50 PM

I had quite a busy day. Lots of walking! We didn't really know what to do so walked from Kings Cross to Holborn (I think) found a nice pub to have a Sunday roast in, we were close to the British museum because it just happened to be there and wandered round, saw some mummies which was pretty cool! Then ended up in Covent Garden and went for coffee. Then I got the bus back to kings cross. I'm not used to doing so much in a day!
I really enjoyed it though! Nice to catch up with Cam after so long!

Chips and curry sauce sounds amazing!

Sketchy 19-02-2017 08:52 PM

Yum. I love chips and curry sauce.

That sounds like a busy day Beckie. I hope you enjoyed it.

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 08:53 PM

I enjoyed it very much :)
And the transport wasn't too busy either which is a bonus!

Sketchy 19-02-2017 08:54 PM

That's always good. It's stressful when it's busy.

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 08:59 PM

It is indeed!
Cam has also persuaded me to try and give up smoking. So next week I will be making an appointment with the smoking cessation nurse at my gp surgery!

chinahorse 19-02-2017 09:00 PM

Wow busy day beckie!

Sketchy 19-02-2017 09:02 PM

Good luck with that Beckie. It will be hard, but worth it.

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 09:03 PM

Very busy! Great fun though!

Thanks Lorraine. I gave up while I was pregnant with jasmine so I should be able to do it again!

not_so_insig 19-02-2017 09:09 PM

Hi there!

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 09:12 PM

Hey dawn :)

chinahorse 19-02-2017 09:14 PM

And just think how much extra money you will have beckie.

Hi dawn.

not_so_insig 19-02-2017 09:16 PM

Hi Beckie.

I have been out for my birthday meal. It wasn't as good as usual. But my paranoia only kicked in a tiny bit which was good.

not_so_insig 19-02-2017 09:18 PM

Hi Lillie

Sketchy 19-02-2017 09:19 PM

Hi Dawn. Sorry it wasn't as good. Sounds like the paranoia is easing a bit, which is good.

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 09:22 PM

That's the main reason Lillie! I told Cam how much I spent on fags in a week and she was really shocked! And she then listed off how much I'd save in 6 weeks and then 12 weeks etc. And it really hit home how much I really spend on them! And I'm hoping to learn to drive this year so the extra money will be needed!

not_so_insig 19-02-2017 09:26 PM

Yes the service was slow despite it being quite empty, the meat on the Sunday dinner was quite fatty and there was no hand cream in the ladies loo (normally there is). Also 2 things had run out of the menu (nothing I wanted though) as well as stuffing for the Sunday dinner menu.

We noticed an new pub on the way so we might try there instead next time we are in that area.

Sketchy 19-02-2017 09:28 PM

That doesn't sound good. Hopefully the new pub will be better.

not_so_insig 19-02-2017 09:35 PM

Oh and this wasn't the pub's fault but there was a table nearby with two very loud people on it. One person kept on using the f word a lot which IMO wasn't totally necessary and it didn't add to the atmosphere.

Sketchy 19-02-2017 09:36 PM

Urgh, it's annoying when people are loud.

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 09:38 PM

Hate people like that in pubs. It's just not necessary!

not_so_insig 19-02-2017 09:42 PM

Yes I am thinking of writing a TripAdvisor review but I am only thinking of giving it 3 stars. If everything had been spot on apart from the loud swearing person I would have been awarded it the five stars.

[Luna] 19-02-2017 10:17 PM

Does anyone watch Call the midwife? Too many feels!!

Cacoethes 19-02-2017 10:42 PM

Argh I forgot it was on!
Tbh I haven't watched any of the new series. I always forget it's on! I need to catch up!

not_so_insig 20-02-2017 12:02 AM

I don't watch Call the Midwife. Can't stand crying babies so an hour of a programme about babies is my idea of hell.

chinahorse 20-02-2017 12:13 AM

I haven't watched any of the new series as im usually travelling when it's on.

My poor right kidney is in revolt. For no good reason. So much pain.

[Luna] 20-02-2017 07:36 AM

Morning guys, I hope you all got some good rest x

chinahorse 20-02-2017 08:19 AM

Morning Luna. I got some broken sleep. What about yourself?

[Luna] 20-02-2017 08:37 AM

I'm sorry to hear that. It took me ages to get to sleep because my mind just wouldn't switch off.
What's on the agenda for today?

chinahorse 20-02-2017 08:45 AM

Oh no it sucks when it's like that.


Erm tv again. Not a lot more I can do. Should try and read but I just don't want to. I may attempt to wash my hair.

What have you got on?

[Luna] 20-02-2017 08:48 AM

What tv have you been watching? You must be going stir crazy!

I've got work. I need to go get ready soon. I feel really anxious but I know I'll be fine once I'm there.

chinahorse 20-02-2017 08:50 AM

I really am. And I'm running out of meds. Just whatever is on. A lot of police interceptors etc.


Ah the anxiety of going can be the worst. It's good you recognise that you'll be ok when you're there.

[Luna] 20-02-2017 08:53 AM

Eek! that's not good. I don't even know what you can do about that??

chinahorse 20-02-2017 08:57 AM

Not a lot considering I'm 3 hours from home.

chinahorse 20-02-2017 10:03 AM

I'm actually stir crazy already. Someone entertain me!

chinahorse 20-02-2017 11:24 AM

How dare you all have lives?! :P

not_so_insig 20-02-2017 12:39 PM

I am awake. It's very windy and I am having difficulty watching telly. Thankfully there's nothing interesting on the telly until Pointless comes on and I have a fair few unwatched recordings.

chinahorse 20-02-2017 12:40 PM

I agree that there's nothing in the box. It's good you have recordings to fall back on.

not_so_insig 20-02-2017 12:47 PM

Or if I am bored I have plenty of dvds. Not sure what I am going watch atm.

chinahorse 20-02-2017 01:16 PM

Did you decide what to watch dawn?

not_so_insig 20-02-2017 01:20 PM

Nope. I just checked twitter which took a while because I don't check twitter that often. Now to check Facebook.
